Heartfelt Creations Design Team Alumni Blog Hop

Good morning!  Happy Tuesday!  It's the last Tuesday of the month which means it's time for another Heartfelt Creations Design Team Alumni blog hop!  Each month, several former Heartfelt Creations designers get together and share projects made with some of our favorite Heartfelt Creations products.  If you arrived here from Marsha's wonderful blog, you are in the right place. If not, you'll want to go Olga's blog and hop from there since Olga is the first stop on the hop and you definitely won't want to miss any of the team's gorgeous creations!

Here is my card for the hop:


This is a bit different than my usual style.  Don't faint - there is no patterned paper or coloring on today's card!  I wanted to get a start on my Christmas cards and I always need a few that are more elegant than whimsical.  I started with a 5x7 card base of GKD Heavy Base Weight Ivory cardstock. The next layer is the largest of the Spellbinders Romantic Rectangles dies.  I stamped the script from Heartfelt Creations HCPC 3428 Script Christmas Tree PreCut Set with Versamark and heat embossed with Gold Ultrafine Embossing Powder.  I created a window frame with a Spellbinders Floral Ovals die.  I stamped the poinsettia flowers from HCPC 3415 Petite Poinsettias Set onto GKD Layering Weight Ivory with Versamark and heat embossed with gold EP.  The individual flowers were cut out with Spellbinders Layered Poinsettias dies and shaped and layered to create a 3-D poinsettia flower.  I added a few burgundy pearls to the flower center.   A bow of Burgundy May Arts silk ribbon and a few ivory pearls on the frames finished my card.

Thanks for stopping by! Your next stop on the hop is Tesa's fantastic blog.  Be sure to leave a comment on every blog as you hop because one comment will be chosen at random from one of the blogs and the lucky commenter will win a $25 gift certificate for the Heartfelt Creations store!  You have until Friday, September 28th at midnight EDT to add your comment.  The winner will be announced on our blogs by noon on Saturday, September 29th.
